A very interesting article on Father Mícheál Mac Gréil who restarted this pilgrimage. Sounds like a man who practiced rather than just preached.

It’s nice walking there, can be approached from either the Maam or Recess side. A bit of midge repellant might be needed in summer!

Kind of parallel thread: another priest (for a time).

The late John O'Donohue recorded in conversation with John Quinn as they walk together on Mám Éan.

It is in the posthumous collection Walking on the Pastures of Wonder but also available (wonderfully) on an old podcast from RTE, recorded in 2000. (RTE is Irish national radio and TV.)


He talks about Míchéal McGréil in the talk.

The text is in the book. There is an American Version called Walking in Wonder also available for Kindle on Amazon.
